I'm not fond of my HSS strats H anymore.
I've got an Anderson HN3+ right now, and i'm finding it's like playing through a toilet paper roll. The signal is super squashed and compressed compared to the Rio Grande singles which are so open and organic sounding.
I have a Duncan Distortion, and its better as far as being more open, but still doesnt pair with those singles.
I'm looking for something with medium output...say 12-13K? AlNi V or I'd try II. Obviously, something that splits well...
What'r you guys using?
I have an Aldrich in my H-S Suhr, and I'm about 75% happy with it. Great sounding pickup, just a bit too bright.
My RG-Anomaly is H-S, and sounds great with a JB in the bridge (though it's cherry, not Alder).
